The upcoming FEBS-EMBO joint lecture course will be on "Molecular Architecture, Dynamics and Function of Biomembranes".
The course will be held from June 12 to June 21, 2017 at the Institut d’Etudes Scientifiques in Cargèse, a picturesque little village on the west coast of Corsica (France) 50 km north of Ajaccio. The course features lectures, tutorials, poster sessions and workshops on various aspects of membrane biochemistry such as : membrane lipid metabolism, transport and function ; membrane protein synthesis, folding and targeting, transmembrane transport etc., both in bacteria and in eukaryotic cells.
The course is immensely popular among students and senior scientists due to the great blend of superb scientific lectures, open air poster sessions, wild beaches and Corsican wine.
